Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Recorded on January 30, 1928 in Memphis, Tennessee. This recording features Gus Cannon on banjo and jug (Cannon created a contraption to hang the jug from his band so he could blow and pick banjo at the same time), Ashley Thompson on vocals and guitar and Noah Lewis on the harp. Minglewood was a lumber camp in Ashley, Tennessee, which was popular amongst musicians in the Mississippi Delta as a "hot spot." This tune became a popular staple of the Grateful Dead. Along with the Memphis Jug Band, Cannon's Jug Stompers was one of the great jug bands of the twenties.

Like many before and many many after not only Grateful Dead followed in the footsteps of the Great Greats, and as we all know Grateful Dead rearranged this moldy oldie & named it All New New Minglewood Blues. Now all us guru apprentices including me. Check out the other 78's and enjoy them as they are (some corney some not) and remember American Idol is probably going to be rewriting them for their next albulm.

This is the original Minglewood Blues, not New Minglewood Blues, which was a staple of the Grateful Dead. Noah Lewis also wrote and recorded New Minglewood Blues a couple of years later. The "new" minglewood is very similar to the Dead's version, which they called New, New Minglewood or All New Minglewood Blues.

Anyway.. This is great stuff, and truly deserves a much better rating than what's been given by some of the other reviewers.

Subject: hm?
this sounds a lot like big railroad blues mixed with real early minglewood. it sounds like you could sing the words to either over it. this is worth listening to about once. the singing... is a little unbearable... GOOD THING THE BOYS HAD THEIR OWN WORDS!! :D
